Miracle Whip Light Contain Gluten?
0

19 posts in this topic

Hello!

I've researched this all morning but can't find a current answer. Is Kraft Miracle Whip LIGHT gluten free? Kraft lists the REGULAR as gluten-free, but doesn't list the LIGHT. Does anyone know??? I've only been diagnosed 6 weeks and I've stopped progressing. It coincides with figuring out that Miracle Whip Light tastes great on my chicken! So know I'm wondering if I've really screwed up! :o I've contacted Kraft, but no response yet. Any clue?

Thanks!

Kraft's policy is to always list all forms of gluten. If wheat, barely, malt or rye are not clearly listed on the ingredient listing or allergen statement, it is gluten free.

On the other hand, Miracle Whip Light has never been gluten free, so I would not trust it. If you read in the forums, you will find it has always contained gluten.

Kraft says it always tells you the ingredients...why do M&M's, Snickers, Oreo cookies (Nabisco is a division of Kraft), some Ritz Crackers...all contain melamine??? That's an ingredient, and we were not told about it.

I never did trust Kraft totally, and now I know I won't again!

"On the other hand, Miracle Whip Light has never been gluten free, so I would not trust it. If you read in the forums, you will find it has always contained gluten."

That's my concern. Kraft carefully lists all the "versions" of their gluten-free products. They include "regular", "light", and "free" for condiments. And, the Miracle Whip only says "regular". Hmmmm. Then I looked it up and other folks on the web said that the "light" variety wasn't gluten free, but that was ancient info. Obviously, I won't use it anymore if I'm not sure. But, being new at this I was REALLY hoping to find out if it's stalled my healing since I eat it daily. And, my progress has definitely gone backward. Has anybody been glutened by it???

Thanks for everyone's responses!

I think you have your answer.

Unless, of course, there's another ingredient in the product that's giving you symptoms.

My general policy is to stick with products that actually say "gluten free" unless I can get a response from the company - or someone on this forum has done so and posted the reply.

I find it difficult to believe that Miracle Whip is gluten free, but the "Lite" version is not.

I found this difficult to believe too, yet my sister, who is a celiac, and a dietician, called and asked, was told that Miracle Whip Light definitely contains gluten. She doesn't eat it, and I believe her when she says it contains gluten!

There is NO Kraft list. There hasn't been for many, many, many years. Any "list" would be at last 7 years old, maybe a decade.

It's very simple. Read the ingredients. No wheat, rye or barley, it's gluten-free. Wheat, rye or barley is listed, it's not gluten-free. Kraft was one of the first to do this and one of the first to regularly list allergens.

This is what Kraft says:

"Kraft does not use Chinese milk ingredients in US products or in any products made outside of China. Of the products we make in China, some do contain low levels of milk ingredients from that country. And we

"I want to see a link, just as you are always telling us! You need to prove your points too."

Where's the link? Why, it's at Kraft's consumer alert page! Imagine that!

http://kraft.com/MediaCenter/milk_ingredient_update.aspx

Now, let's take a look at the story you provided.

"The test results raise the number of known melamine-tainted food products imported to South Korea from China to 10."

Let's see now, South Korea. Hmmm, last time I looked, this was the USA. And lo and behold the Kraft statement says those products that are made in China do NOT COME TO THE U.S. Again, China-made products containing milk do NOT come to the U.S.

The FDA has not issued any warnings. Kraft says those products don't come to the U.S. So please explain again why you think we are eating melamine-tainted products by Kraft. And this time please provide a link showing that those products are indeed reaching the U.S. or Europe.

BTW, I looked at the ingredients for Miracle Whip Lite. No wheat, rye or barley. Of course I can't guarantee anything about contamination, but as formulated, it's meant to be gluten-free.

"Melamine was found in Snickers Peanut Funsize and M&Ms chocolate milk made by Mars, as well as KitKat wafers made by Nestle and a biscuit manufactured by Lotte Confectionery Co., the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement Saturday."

None of these products are made by Kraft. How is this relevant?

Sarcasm does not become you Richard. The Associated Press says it has come to the USA. I have never believed Kraft to be as nice as you want everyone to believe they are. Kraft also will say what it wants us to hear, of course, they are not going to tell us to stop buying their product. Read the newspapers yourself, I provided the links needed, if you want to hide your head in the sand, that's your problem. They have already said the FDA is researching all this...it takes time, doesn't happen overnight, just like it didn't happen overnight tainting all these foods and killing little babies.

Snickers and M&M's are made by Mars, a division of Kraft. Look it up, just as Nabisco is a division of Kraft. I had not heard about the KitKats yet. Anyways, Mars and Nabisco are Kraft...now do you see why it's relevant?

Mars is NOT Kraft; it is privately owned by the Mars family and has nothing to do with Kraft, unless some of the family members happen to own a few Kraft shares.

Nestle SA, the maker of KitKat, is a publicly held company with headquarters in Switzerland and, again, has no connection with Kraft.

Nabisco is owned by Kraft, but none of the products you mentioned are made by Nabisco.

So, I still wonder, how is what you said in any way relevant to Kraft?

Clickable links are provided in the text.

I read about the connection of Mars and Kraft in an Associated Press announcement the other day, and I don't care if they are not one in the same...they both used the tainted milk products.

I guess, whether they have melamine or not isn't as interesting to me as the fact that these "chocolate" products are mostly chemicals. I feel like we've been lulled into eating a lot of things that are not good, and possibly bad, for us.

This whole melamine contamination thing, first with the pet food, and then with the milk, brings home the need for awareness about what you eat and where it comes from.

And I eat Miracle whip light with no reactions. There are no obvious gluten containing ingredients.

Good, I'm sure they have changed the ingredients, it did contain gluten. These companies can change ingreds anytime they want. We have to always read the label, every time we buy the product. I was using Hellman's Canola Mayo, and it was great, then I got sick with it. They had changed it, made it cholesterol free, and added soy to it. I can't have soy, so now, I can't have mayo again. :(

The food situation does scare me, and that's why I try to stick to foods with as few ingredients as possible.

This to me is a VERY GOOD indicator that Miracle Whip Light is glute free.

    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
